SPECIFICATIONS - FLUID CAPACITIES
DESCRIPTION SPECIFICATION
Fuel Tank 47.5 L (12.5 gal.)
Engine Oil* - 2.4 L 4.8 L (5.0 qts.) mobil 1 synthetic
Cooling System** 6.2 L (6.5 qts.)
Automatic Transaxle - Estimated Service Fill 3.8 L (4.0 qts.)

Manual Transaxle - NV T350 2.4-2.7 L (2.5-2.8 qts.)
Manual Transaxle - NV T850*** 2.3-2.5L (2.4-2.6 qts.)
*(includes new filter)
**(includes heater and recovery/reserve bottle)
***(includes 0.12 L (4 oz.) of Mopar® Limited Slip Additive (P/N 04318060AB))
Mopar® ATF+4 (Automatic Transmission Fluid) is required in T850 manual transaxle. Neon SRT-4 Models equipped with the T850 manual transaxle also require the addition of 0.12L (4 oz.) of Mopar® Limited Slip Additive (P/N 04318060AB).
Mopar® ATF+4 (Automatic Transmission Fluid) when new is red in color. The ATF is dyed red so it can be identified from other fluids used in the vehicle such as engine oil or antifreeze. The red color is not permanent and is not an indicator of fluid condition. As the vehicle is driven, the ATF will begin to look darker in color and may eventually become brown. This is normal. A dark brown/black fluid accompanied with a burnt odor and/or deterioration in shift quality may indicate fluid deterioration or transmission component failure.

all you need is mopar atf+4

this goes to anyone changing their trans fluid..you do not need the friction modifier.the trans will operate better without it and it breaks down the viscosity of the trans oil

wait it out and get ATF +4 , better off waiting than putting in some cheap mumbo jumbo shit that'll cause more problems in the long run and wind up costing you 1200 bucks instead of the 30-40 you woulda paid for the Mopar fluids.

You are correct, I've purchased it from a chrysler dealer twice now b/c the parts dept. in my dodge dealership was closed.

Since we are on the subject, how often should the tranny fluid be changed? My service tech (dealership) says 30,000 miles for the SRT-4. Do you guy agree?
